Back on top of the Premier League, Manchester United will attempt to get their Champions League campaign off the ground when they welcome Wolfsburg to Old Trafford on Wednesday.
He said: “Listen, they’re soft”.
“Manchester United fans might even question my decision to have Wayne Rooney in behind the striker but he’s a big-time player and you just watch how influential he is on Sunday”, Merson told Sky Sports. “I used the words arrogance and naivety earlier in the season“, said Neville.
Arsenal went down 2-1 to Dynamo Zagreb in their first game before losing 3-2 at home to Olympiacos on Tuesday night.

“If someone is going to shoot from the edge of the box, you want your midfielders or defenders to throw themselves at it to do everything for the team, whether you cost £4million of £42m”, added Redknapp.
Louis van Gaal insists he will see out the “last aim” of his managerial career at Manchester United satisfied that he has not gone the same route as long-serving managers like Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger. It’s a wonderfully pure theory around football; it’s fantastic morals and principles but if it doesn’t work you have to challenge it.

Heading into Sunday’s tussle, United have the joint-best defensive record in the top flight alongside Tottenham having conceded just five goals in seven games so far. “You will slaughter me”, he said.
The Reds are unbeaten in their last 10 meetings with Everton in all competitions dating back to October 2010. Although not completely cataclysmic, events at Highbury for Arsenal football club were not best pleasing.
“There’s a lot of very good things you see from United when defending”. But when Roy Hodgson thinks he needs him I am very happy for him, because he wants to play for the national team.
Van Gaal was clearly aggrieved afterwards about the frequency with which his team lost the ball but in the midst of his withering critique, he did talk of it being “beautiful goal” to give them the lead.
Sunday’s trip to Arsenal is arguably United’s first real test of the season as it is the first time they have faced opposition that finished above them in the table last time around.
